Wrong model, bad pachage!

MITCHELL CHIRE, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought 17 units. They sent me a wrong part number: ST9500420AS instead of ST9500423AS. The ST9500420AS is an old model with diferente specifications. I was charged with US$ 5.95 for the shpping for every hard disk and I expected for a great package. I received the 17 units in a box almost without wrappers!

Hard Drive Failed Twice

Barney J., Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive 4 months ago. It failed within a few weeks, but I reformatted and thought it was a fluke. Should have returned it then. It just failed again, big time. Out of warranty, so I have to buy a new drive.

Product Failed After 8 Months

R. Brennan Knotts, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the product in January 2013 and it failed on me in September 2013. I was going to hold off leaving a negative review because I planned to exercise my warranty to get it replaced, but after looking at how complicated the warranty process is, it just doesn't seem worth it. First, it's a hassle just to navigate their site, find your product, and figure out if you qualify for a warranty.

Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750GB 7200RPM 16MB SATA 3GB/S Hard Drive

  • Excerpt: Quickly although it lasted. Bought this drive 4 months ago and began to develop problems at boot-up soon after a month or two. Turns out the drive was undesirable causing error immediately after error. Prevent this drive until they get the bugs worked out. Seagate returns look relatively straight forward. Hopefully my replacement drive is more trustworthy... Paid the extra บ for the WD 7200 / 750GB when upgrading my wife's macbook.

  • Excerpt: Previously reliable brand Really high power consumption, which they do not promote. three times the consumption of my 7200RPM Fujitsu (now Toshiba) self-encrypting 320G drive.Does not have any of the sophisticated functions advertised boldly on the Newegg web page:NO encryption as you have been led to feel it had,NO free-fall protection as you have been led to feel it had.

  • Excerpt: Worked nicely for a brief time. About a month soon after installing this in my pc I started getting getting crashes and blue screens. Following lots of components swapping, re-formatting and re-installs it turns out it's the challenging drive causing my concerns. Hopefully my issues are rare with this device. I was really enjoying the large capacity prior to the problems began.

  • Excerpt: Substantial capacity, low expense, higher efficiency Low reliability. Produced chirping noise following many hours of use. Chirping noise became a constant whine. Drive dismounted and then would not mount again, conveniently immediately after moving all of my data onto it. Returning for another brand.

  • Excerpt: Not a whole lot - 贄 paper weight. Seemed to work for a couple of weeks. Started to have overflow errors. Employed Disk Utility and repaired drive but right after a whilst began to do the identical factor and eventually really crashed OSX. I reformatted the drive with Disk Utility and rebuilt operating process and applications and once more after a couple of days However I had written on the leading of the drive, on the writeable surface (a practice I started sometime ago...
